In case by some freak accident of nature you haven't seen the current issue of Cloth Paper Scissors, here is a sneak peek at the amazing work of artist Devorah Sperber. She did an entire installation of Star Trek yumminess, including these amazing transporter displays created with colored faceted beads and silver bicone beads on monofilament, suspended from silver painted wooden dowels.
Check out the entire piece, Beaming In, featuring Captain Kirk, Spock and Dr. McCoy:
I am continually amazed by the artistic talent and creativity out there. I just *had* to share Devorah's work... talk about thinking outside of the box!
And in case Star Trek is not your cup of chai, check out her Thread Spool Works created with, you guessed it, spools of thread. Total coolness.
